xPDK_CompactModel_ListThis section in a xPDK extends from xPDK_Header.
The Compact Model List file provides a table with building block types. Per building block type a list of models is defined that describes what type of (compact) model should be defined for a BB/Model definition file using the Circuit Simulation file.
StructureThis element does not have attributes. The elements are shown below, in a sorted per type fashion.
In case a list is printed after an element, it indicates that you can have many, otherwise it should be a single element. With a optional it tells the element is not required.

bbtypeDefine the type of building block.
A building block type is used to define the models that such types support. This is the same for all foundries and needs to be supported by the circuit simulation software, so alignment between parties is key.
Type pdaBBtypeItem documentation: The BBType name is used for refences.
licenseStichting PDAFlow Foundation. See http://www.pdaflow.org/xpdk_license.php. Type pdaLicense documentation: Define license information.
State the basic conditions of using the file and typically refer to legal documents.
License information should be compact enough to be clear as reference. The reference is expected to be to signed documents like Non Disclose Agreements (NDA) or service contracts and so on.
modeltypeDefine the type of model.
This defines the properties and parameters a models has. This is the same for all foundries and needs to be supported by the circuit simulation software, so alignment between parties is key.
